Why is the ULTASMILE Toothbrush three-sided?
ULTASMILE'S three-sided design provides multiple benefits. Automatically angling the bristles into the gum line at the dental professionally recommended angle, to ensure proper cleaning at the gum line to prevent gum disease. The design also incorporates independent support arms, allowing our toothbrush to apply the right amount of pressure during brushing to effectively clean the teeth and protect the soft gum tissue. This feature ensures you get greater brushing coverage in each brushing stroke, delivering more thorough brushing in the same amount of time.
